Paolo Achenza TrioDo It ... CD
Right Tempo (Italy), 1994. Used ... $18.99
Great album of jazzy electric piano. One of the first releases on Right Tempo, and still one of the best. Very warm electric sound, great rhythm section, plus a guest appearance by Greg Osby. Funky, swinging, and very bossa. Nice stripped down grooves, with a very genuine feel, and some of the ... read more CD

AJ & The JiggawattsAJ & The Jiggawatts ... CD
GED Soul, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99
The first-ever full length we've ever heard from AJ & The Jiggawatts – and a record that really lives up to the promise of their work on funky 45! These guys are a deep funk combo, but one with a difference – energy that's a bit more raw and rough around the edges, in the best ... read more CD

Kylie AuldistFamily Tree ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
A sweet change in sound from Kylie Auldist – an artist we know mostly for deep funk work with The Bamboos on backup – but who steps out here in a style that's got much more of an 80s soul vibe overall! The arrangements are full, funky, and beautifully suited to Kylie's voice – ... read more CD

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandBacao Rhythm & Steel Band ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A fantastic full length set from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – a group who've really won us over in recent years with a fast flurry of funky 45s! The group take an older steel band sound, and forge it to a might tighter rhythmic impulse – with a sound that's often even funkier ... (Global Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

✨✧ Bad PlusGive ... CD
Sony, 2004. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most compelling modern groups in jazz does it again – taking the simple piano trio format and giving it a spin that's sure to catch even the most wary of ears! These guys aren't exactly funky, but they play in a freely rhythmic style that brings new life to anything they touch ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

Bad PlusSuspicious Activity? ... CD
Columbia, 2005. Used ... $6.99
The Bad Plus have cut down their groove a bit more on this set – going for a style that's even more introspective than before, but which also shows them expanding their horizons nicely! The group's lineup of bass, piano, and drums is played with a dynamism that recalls some of the acoustic ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

Charles BradleyChanges ... CD
Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Jaw-dropping work from Charles Bradley – a stunning album that's maybe his best so far – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the quality of his previous work! There's a focus and power here that really puts Charles on top – from the bold statement at the start of the record, ... read more CD

Leon BridgesComing Home ... CD
Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
An album with a very classic look on the cover – and an equally classic sound to match – one that takes us back to some of the hippest, coolest work by early 60s singers like Sam Cooke or Marvin Gaye! Both artists are a good comparison here, as Leon Bridges is unabashedly in the same ... (Neo Soul, Deep Funk) read more CD
Also available Coming Home (180 gram pressing – includes download) ... LP 18.99

Budos BandBurnt Offering ... CD
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Some of the deepest, heaviest work we've ever heard from the Budos Band – as you might guess from the album's dark title and cover! There's a bit of a heavy metal look to the package, but the sounds within are still the righteous funk we've always loved from Budos – yet are also ... read more CD

Calibro 35CLBR35 Live From Space ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
Calibro 35 have always had a soundtrack style to their music – but here, they seem to hit an even trippier, spacier version of the mode – playing an all-live, all-instrumental set that's bubbling over with loads of wonderful elements! Some tracks are still as funky as before, but ... (New Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

Calibro 35Sogni Di Gloria ... CD
Tannen (Italy), 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
Calibro 35 move strongly into the world of actual soundtrack music – after a number of albums that had them taking on classic sounds of Italian cinema – and the result is a set that might well be one of the strongest the group has ever cut! The core small combo approach is still the ... (New Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

Cookin On 3 BurnersBlind Bet ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
This fierce funky trio just gets better and better with each new record – to the point where we'd be hard-pressed to think of any better combination of funky drums, guitar, and Hammond! The core rhythms are sublime – in a Meters-esque territory, but even sharper, given the group's love ... read more CD

Dandelion SetThousand Strands – 1975 to 2015 ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, ... read more CD

Tucxone (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
There must be something funky going down in the water in Spain – because in recent years, the nation's scene has given us some mighty hard-hitting funky artists – the best of whom may well be featured on this set! Shirley Davis isn't one of those easy retro soul singers – and ... read more CD

DiazporaIslands ... CD
Legere (France), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
A record with a cosmic cover, but a sound that's very down to earth – fierce deep funk, in the best Legere Records mode – played by a group who are currently one of the hardest-hitting acts on the funky label! The music's got the full-on power of Afro Funk – especially in the way ... read more CD

DopegemsNecksnappin ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
Dope gems, indeed – as the album's filled with fierce funky tracks that take us back to the 70s heyday of CTI Records and blacksploitation soundtracks! Yet the sound here isn't just fake retro funk, either – it's really well-crafted, jazz-heavy work that's filled with sweet vibes, ... read more CD

ExcitementsBreaking The Rule ... CD
Penniman (Spain), 2016. Used ... $9.99
The Excitements are a group who really live up to their name – with a hard-romping approach to soul that kicks in right from the very first note, then keeps on burning strong – thanks to excellent lead vocals from singer Koko Jean Davis! Koko's got this unbridled sound that reminds us ... read more CD

✨✧ Lee FieldsLet's Get A Groove On ... CD
Desco, 1999. Used ... $29.99
Killer funk! Amazing new release by Lee Fields, one of the 70's lost funky geniuses – and a record that sounds like it was lifted from the vaults of James Brown's People label, circa 1972! Unlike other "funk revival" titles of the past few years (especially those by ex-JBs Fred ... read more CD

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A really fantastic album from the legendary Lee Fields – a set that blows us away every bit as much as his stellar My World album! Like that set, this one's got kind of a moody early 70s vibe – almost a New Jersey soul approach at times, but tinged with more southern modes – ... read more CD
